4G Vs. 5G

4g5gAs you browse the web for current events in the telecommunications industry, you will often see articles and product advertisements for both 4G and 5G.  We know that 4G is well established in most places and is being integrated in areas that are being upgrading to current technological trends.  So if we are not completely done with 4G, why do we need 5G?  Though 4G still has room for growth, our world’s consumers have growing demands as well.

4G technology is an improvement of 3G networks, along with its equivalent, LTE.  4G uses multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) and orthogonal frequency division multiplex (OFDM) to differentiate themselves from 3G.  4G offers faster network speed and the ability to allow multiple users to share the same channel. 4G is quickly covering our nation and is being deployed as you read this. 4G is the technology of today and 5G is the technology of tomorrow.

5G is currently being researched and developed. Companies worldwide are racing to the finish line, hoping they finish before everyone else. 5G will hopefully have a 1000 times increase in capacity, lower than 1 millisecond latency, up to 10 gigabits per second speeds, and full network support for over 100 billion connections. 5G will use cloud RAN and virtual RAN designed infrastructure in order to centralize their networks through the use of localized data centers. 5G technology will automatically choose its channels and alter itself to fit certain situation. 5G is the technology of the suture. Fortunately, the future is coming quickly.
